Daily Weather Briefing for Friday, November 29, 2019






Outlook

Dry weather will continue today under a ridge of high pressure aloft. Moisture will begin to gradually spill back into the region from the west tonight through Saturday, with a cold front bringing another good chance of showers to our area for the latter half of the weekend. Colder air will return next week, with highs on Monday ranging from the mid-30s on the Highlands Plateau to the lower 40s elsewhere in the county. Snow showers on Monday may turn to rain in the lower elevations by mid-morning.
